  • Supporting System Test and Integration Activities
  • Production of appropriate technical documentation
  • Diagnosing and solving identified issues

Knowledge of Agile and Scrum would be beneficial.

Your skills and qualifications as a Software Engineer:

Ideally, you have an honours degree or equivalent professional qualification in a relevant STEM subject, although relevant knowledge and experience may offset the qualification requirements. You will be required to pass full Security Clearance.
